We visited Newfoundland in the off season of early October. While many establishments we're closed, the Artisan Inn offered a great restaurant for dinner and breakfast (with advanced reservations). There's also Port Rexton Brewery 10 min drive away that has good beers and an epic grilled cheese food truck option. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful as well. The location was ideal as there is so much to see and do around Trinity and the Bonavita peninsula. We stayed in Hill House and it was a great open space design that was ideal for a couple, probably would be tough with kids and or multiple couples. The house had everything we needed, including an outdoor fire pit with chairs and a view. We would come back and stay here again.

We stayed at the Artisan Inn in the Barbour House for 2-nights in early September ($185/night). Before describing our stay, I should comment on the inn's layout because I found it somewhat confusing on the internet. It is a collection of a fairly large number of stand-alone multi-coloured houses that climb up a hill from a small, flat area along the harbour where the Twine Loft (the inn's restaurant and reception office) is located. Many of the houses on the hill have fabulous harbour views, while those on the other side of the road perhaps less so. The Barbour House, situated immediately behind the Twine Loft, had a king suite on the ground floor and two queen studios above. We had originally booked one of the studios, which have a partial harbour view around the sides of the Twine Loft, but were kindly upgraded to the ground floor suite when we arrived. Our suite was large, with a huge fully equipped kitchen, living/dining area, and a large bedroom at the back. The furnishings reminded me of what ones grandparents cottage by the sea might be like, dated, creaky (you will hear footfalls from the rooms above), comfortably furnished with an eclectic collection of somewhat mismatched furniture. The kitchen was fully equipped with an stove, half refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker, toaster and all of the cookware, flatware, tableware, etc, with a bbq on the front deck. The dining room table was large with 3 chairs, the bedroom had a very large 4-poster king bed and plenty of storage. The sitting area had a foldout couch and a tiny TV on a low table. There were plenty of windows, but you'll need to keep the drapes shut because of the people walking by. The bathroom had a tub-shower combination, but there was not much room for our toiletries and the showers water pressure was a bit low. There were 2 Adirondack chairs on the front porch with views to the harbour, and we could also sit on the deck at the front of the Twine Loft (no outside alcohol there, though). Our room came with a complimentary breakfast – a $10 per person credit that was enough for any of the items on the menu. We dined at the Twine Loft one night – the 3-course set menu was tasty, but not quite up to the quality that would justify the $60 per person charge. There were also a couple of other restaurants within easy walking distance. We found the inn's location to be good for exploring the peninsula, an easy 40 min drive to Bonavista and the puffins at Elliston, and Trinity was by far the most picturesque community on the peninsula. A comfortable, but certainly not luxurious base; at this price, considered in comparison with other accommodations, I would have expected a bit more value than what was delivered.

Eight of us stayed 2 nights at 2 houses that were apart of the Artisan Inn properties. We dined one night in the Twine Loft Restaurant. This was a fabulous trip - the accommodations were perfect…. Comfortable beds with ocean views. We couldn’t have asked for more. We were very appreciative of Marieke who took care of all our needs. The meal at the Twine Loft was great. The serving staff were very attentive to our needs and the food was fabulous. We will be making a return trip.

We stayed at Campbell House for two nights and it was the highlight of our entire ten day trip to Newfoundland. Trinity itself is something special and no trip to the province should miss out on a couple of nights here. Campbell House itself feels like your stepping back in time and has the kind of authentic feel that every historic B&B is looking to achieve. In fact its the imperfections like the wonky floors and ceilings (that make you feel drunk even when sober) that really make the place special. The private fire pit overlooking the harbour is also a great spot to spend the evening with a bottle of wine (or two!). Service from time of booking to check-out was amazing and would also strongly recommend the Twine Loft for cocktails and dinner as it was our favourite meal of the whole trip.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Twine Loft and a spectacular stay at Hill House! Staff at the Artisan Inn are exceptional. Trinity and the area have so much to explore and enjoy. Fox Island and Skerwink are fabulous hikes. Don’t miss a visit to the Champney’s West Aquarium and the Two Whales Cafe.
